Elba is the third-largest island in the Tuscan Archipelago, and it is known for its stunning beaches with serene, crystal-clear waters. There are many different bike trails to choose from on Elba, ranging from easy coastal rides to challenging mountain bike trails.

For centuries, these expansive mines played a vital role as a primary source of iron ore for the region, and their historical significance spans generations. As we explore the mines, we'll make a stop for a delicious lunch at Tenuta delle Ripalte.

On the next day, we'll move forward to the Conquistadors Tour, departing from Capoliveri. As we traverse the scenic route, you will have the privilege of partaking in a delightful wine tasting session at the renowned Arrighi farm, followed by lunch in the charming town of Porto Azzurro, located on the eastern coast of Elba Island.

Next, on our Capo Stella Tour, we'll explore the scenic route. Here, we will find some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, known for their clear waters, white sand, and secluded coves.

We had a fantastic time on the Monte Rosa Tour and couldn’t recommend the team and trip highly enough. The tour was extremely well planned to ensure we had the best chance of achieving our goals whilst having a great time, thanks to a perfect mix of climbing and learning whilst giving our bodies a chance to adapt/ acclimatise and rest. Each day was varied and exciting and our guides were extremely knowledgeable, safe and great fun to spend a week with. The course was perfectly tailored to the teams skill level and allowed us all to have a brilliant time. Can’t thank Enrico, Marco and Francesco enough. Cheers guys
